Illegal Immigrant Planning Kidnapping Attack Arrested

Publication is now permitted of the arrest of an illegal immigrant, Murad Muhammad Hassan Ali-Hasin, a resident of the northern Samaria Arab village of Qabatiya who, upon questioning, admitted to attempting a kidnapping attack in the northern community of Avtalion.

Ali-Hasin identified himself with the Islamic Jihad movement and attempted to enter the Avtalion community last month while armed with a knife. He had planned to kidnap someone from his home in order to arm the Palestinian Authority with a bargaining chip for further prisoner releases.
